Reduced Price for Ancestry - but hurry!

Have you put off subscribing to for some reason, or just until the price goes down?

If so, you might consider the offer at . They are offering the US Deluxe subscription for $99 and the World deluxe subscription for $150, after a 14 day free trial. You do have to put a credit card number in - this is not a real free trial - you have to subscribe to get the two weeks free. But it is the best deal I've seen yet if you really want to subscribe to

This deal expires on Saturday, 30 December, so you need to decide pretty soon (BG!).

On a similar note, I just completed a survey (email from Ancestry) asking me if I would definitely renew my US Deluxe membership for $155, or how about $79? Or $155 for the World Deluxe membership? Or $79 for the US and $29 each for additional countries (say, UK, Canada or Germany)? It could be that is considering reducing the subscription cost in order to capture more of the market.

Competition is good for the genealogy industry. I hope the price goes down for everything! FYI, I did subscribe to at the $99 rate for the US package back in November. I thought it was a good deal at the time, and still do.

You can get 14 days free. You do have to give them a credit card but you can cancel anytime during the 14 day period and not be charged. I'm on the fence right now, I have another week to decide. My deal is for $95.40. I had heard that they had three free days and when I went there and logged in this deal was offered instead.

There have been a lot of changes since I last subscribed, all to the good. I would not go the $155 but $95 is very tempting. On the other hand I've gotten by without it for the last few years. I like the idea of being able to pick and choose which data sets would benefit me most. If after a year my price goes over $99 I will cancel.
